Quick And Easy Donuts Recipe


is it donuts or Doughnuts??? who cares its bloody good that’s all we should know. Donuts are so popular in almost every country and can you believe each country has its specific donut as well. Churros in Spain, Loukoumades in Greece and so on.

As a kid, I loved just sinking my teeth into a big fat doughnut, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, perfectly balanced in sweetness and topped with chocolate glaze and sprinkled with nuts!!! Now, who doesn’t go nuts with doughnuts?

My simple donut recipe is easy to make and can be done for sudden cravings. You know which cravings I am talking about ya? its the once you get out of the blue, keep checking the pantry to see if you got any cookies to munch on and the cookie jar is empty, that kind of craving.
